Genre: Puzzle

Problem: after loading ppsspp is telling me that the file is corrupt / wrong. but i downloaded the eboot multiple times from multiple different sources and no eboot did work. always the same error. i played locoroco halloween demo as a child and wanted to replay it to get a little bit of nostalgia..but its not working Sad other locoroco demos too don't seem to work on ppsspp (not even on the android version as an example).


greetings

You need to own a real PSP to be able to play many demos, some homebrew and few commercial games since real PSP is the only thing which can decrypt them. This might never change.
Decrypted demos should however work just as fine as the full games.

as a child i had a psp flat (even with cfw and stuff), but after a while i damaged the battery with the exploit (reprogrammed my battery for installing cfw's) and didn't use my psp anymore.. now in this times i don't have a psp anymore. and i don't want to buy one just to play the locoroco halloween demo Sad i thought ppsspp could open every demo etc.. because it's emulating the psp system. so why ppsspp is not be able to decrypt / decompress even demos? Sad is there not way of doing this without the need of a psp?

greetings

Compression has nothing to do with encryption. Also PPSSPP can decrypt pretty much everything as long as we have the key, the problem is not all keys are public and you can't brute force 128bit AES keys.
Those which we do have are from Sony's official PSP emulators for ps3/psv and it's very unlikely to get missing keys any time soon, so no amount of sad emotes will change the reality.

The only way to play such demos without PSP would be to have a friend with PSP and bugging him to decrypt the executable of the demo for you ~ ;p. And if you don't want to bug friends just to play some ancient demo or are a nerd without friends, simply buy a full version of the game, will be roughtly same thing just with more content.
Through probably not much cheaper from PSP as the handheld is very cheap nowadays. Second hand can be as low as 15$, often with some games in a pack. Batteries are usually awful, doesn't matter original or not since they degraded over time, I personally solved that via small power bank, double side stick tape and a very short cable;p.
